Alice Finch (she/her) is from Seattle, US and acknowledges that she lives on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Duwamish and Coastal Salish Peoples, and honours with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe, who are the original caretakers of the land.
Alice is an award-winning builder and author of half a dozen LEGO books, including The LEGO Architecture Idea Book. She is particularly interested in architecture and landscaping, and often builds collaboratively with her two sons as well as others in the Seattle LEGO community.
Neuropathy in her hands and arms has caused her to shift from building to educating with bricks. She spends much of her time volunteering in schools, using LEGO bricks as the collaborative medium for discussing and creating art based on diversity, equity, and climate change.
Unpleasant experiences as a new AFOL prompted her to create a place that supports, inspires, and empowers women and girls. She co-founded the Women’s Brick Initiative and the Brick Alliance to focus on the importance of equity, diversity, and inclusion across all aspects of the LEGO ecosystem.
